HYDERABAD: A woman trying to help two persons reach a nearby place of worship had led to the kidnap of her 11-year daughter on Wednesday night. But her nightmare ended in relief a few hours later as the abductors returned the girl unharmed. The abduction drama of Sai Divya, a class VI student from Defence Colony came to an end after the kidnappers let her off in the same locality.

Divya along with her mother, Swaroopa were walking to her home from tuition when two persons on a motorcycle approached them and inquired about the address of a local Sai Baba temple. Though Swaroopa tried to help them by telling directions, they told her they were searching for the temple for more than half-an-hour. “Swaroopa, herself a devotee of Sai Baba, asked her daughter to guide the duo. After walking for a few feet, the persons picked up Divya and fled away,’’ a police officer said.

On information, police intensified vehicle checkings in the locality which probably might have forced abductors to release the girl.

“They left the girl near Bhavan’s Degree College and left the place around 9.45 p.m,’’ Neredmet police inspector K Venkat Reddy said. “The abductors had wandered for sometime on the streets with the girl and as she started to raise an alarm they let her off,’’ police said.

No ransom call was made to the family and police are not sure of the motive of the abductors. A case of kidnap was registered and investigation is on to trace the accused. Divya’s father Anjaneyulu is a stationary businessman.
